Prenuptial agreements can be an inheritance requirement

For many Florida couples who are preparing to wed, negotiating a prenup is not a step that the parties set out to take, but a requirement for one party in order to secure his or her inheritance. While "forced" prenuptial agreements can seem like a harsh family approach to wedded bliss, there is little debate about the fact that many marriages will eventually end in divorce. Viewed from a different angle, a prenuptial agreement can be seen as a savvy financial planning tool, and not a cruel or heartless statement about the strength of a couple's commitment.

Father of 2 tennis stars facing high asset divorce battle

Florida residents who follow tennis will recognize the names Venus and Serena Williams. Both women have created astounding careers for themselves, and have become some of the most recognizable names and faces in the world of sports. Many tennis fans are aware that their father, Richard Williams, was instrumental in pushing them to achieve and surpass their goals at early ages. Richard Williams is currently in the news not in relation to his superstar daughters, however, but based on his upcoming high asset divorce.

More research that supports the benefits of collaborative law

Few Florida residents relish the thought of a highly contentious or bitter divorce. That is especially true for parents, who must also consider the effect that a nasty divorce might have on their shared children. Researchers have looked at the impact that divorce can have on children, and have concluded that it is not the divorce itself that causes hardship for kids, but the manner in which the parents handle the divorce. That is yet another reason why parents should consider a collaborative law approach as they prepare to part ways.

Supreme Court weighs in on military divorce property division

For Florida servicemembers, going through a divorce is a challenging time. Determining how to divide marital wealth is one of the most difficult aspects of the process, and the outcome will shape the financial futures of both parties. A recent case that went before the United States Supreme Court has led to clarification on property division issues that affect military families.

Making the most out of property division proceeds

Once a divorce is concluded, most Florida spouses will walk away with a share of the wealth that was accumulated during their marriage. The proceeds of the property division process should be dealt with very carefully, so that the wealth is preserved and available for use for many years to come. In order to reach those goals, it may be necessary to make financial adjustments in the months or years following a divorce.
